Heart shapes have been around for thousands of years in art, although they weren’t always used as a stylized representation of a human heart. Most of these early precursors to heart designs were in the form of leaf designs and spear heads. Over time, the same shape was adapted to become a symbol of the human heart – the place in the body that was believed to be the birthplace of emotions like love and passion.

Later, heart tattoos bore the names of wives and/or children, sometimes even a favored port. During World War II, soldiers wore heart tattoos with the name of a girlfriend or wife.

As tattoo machines improved and tattoo artists could produce finer detail in the art works, heart tattoo designs became more complex. Some were depicted with symbolic elements such as snakes, swords, fire or flowers. A very popular form of heart tattoo included a banner that hung across the heart with a name or motto written across it. The heart symbol is made up of two halves, usually the same size and shape.
